I’m Lizzie Jay and I’m a freelance writer. I have a background in tech as I have an honours degree in physics followed by 20 years in the IT industry. I worked my way up from being a programmer to analyst and consultant running teams of developers. After spending a year travelling the world (due to lack of a misspent youth!) I went solo and spent a number of years running my own business as a contractor before relocating from London to Sydney, Australia.
Once there I decided to take the leap that I had always promised myself and set about starting a writing business, and the rest as they say, is history. Today, I write mainly for technology firms so that I can put my IT background to good use, although in the past I have written all sorts of web copy from landing pages for removal companies to informational marketing brochures for laser eye surgery practitioners. While I think it is interesting to write about different topics, I am more productive when I write about something I know, and I know technology!
And that is why I am confident I can help you whether you want to entice more prospects to find out more about you, land clients or impress peers with your insider knowledge. Whatever you need a freelance technology writer for, my aim is to help you achieve your goals with my skills of accuracy, clarity and ability to explain complicated topics in a simple way.
When we moved back to the UK we settled in The Cotswolds, which is perfect as I like nothing better than a good walk in idyllic surroundings. Well, that and maybe killer sudokus, astronomy and I have a definite soft spot for Prof. Brian Cox and Doctor Who.
I think it is important to have a good work-life balance, and utilising the power of the internet to find you extra clients and spread the word about your business daily without any extra input from you fits in perfectly with this ethos.
I love what I do, and I look forward every day to helping people who aren’t natural writers perfect their websites, draw potential customers in and raise the profile of their businesses. I am experienced in best practices for creating websites and the SEO requirements that bump articles up the search engine results pages.
